5/25/18: I'm starting a build out thread for a Cliff Bordwell custom bass I'm having made. I'd never heard of Bordwell Basses until I saw one up for sale (a rarity) and started researching them. The work looked impeccable, and the designs were simple and elegant. The cost is extremely reasonable and Cliff is great to work with. He is starting my bass now and I'm stoked! Here is a pic of the buckeye burl top wood he selected. It's looking awesome thus far and I will post new pics as Cliff sends them to me. I can't wait to play this thing!! Godspeed to you sir!!
